On-Campus Testing for the ACT 

An ACT On-Campus™ test is an alternative to the ACT® test that enables colleges to proctor and immediately self-score an ACT test form any day of the week, on their campus. Results of this unique offering can provide insight into a student’s achievement level. Scores can only be used at your campus, and testing is limited to students who are in the application process, have been admitted, or have enrolled at your institution.


  • Colleges—The ACT On-Campus testing program is only available to colleges that have an ACT college code with ACT.  
  • Students—ACT On-Campus Testing may be administered to students who are unable to take the ACT test on a regularly scheduled test date and: 1) are in the application process at your college, 2) have been admitted to your college, or 3) are enrolled at your college. Students who do not intend to attend your college should not take the ACT On-Campus Test on your campus.
